Anyone have any advice how to use my camera to take coral pics? Not a real fancy camera, but don’t know the first thing about them. Please let me know settings you use as well as a filter if any. Thanks I’m advance!

what camera are do you use? I run canon, on my sl2 which is the main camera I use to film my yt vids and pics, I use a K&f brown filter, I set iso from 400-800, shutter speed is from 30-80, f-stop is at 4 lowest my 17-85mm macro lens goes down to, and I use a custom/adjusted color profile.

for example here's a vid I just uploaded today lol (shameless plug)
(for best viewing watch in 1080.)
hope this helps

This is the best explainer video that I found. I have a dslr but it’s older and isn’t as easy to use as the newer ones. I definitely used the video to give me a very quick, solid understanding of how these cameras work. Also, you’ll want a macro lense.
